Trichloroethylene (TCE) ............................................................................................................... Vinyl Chloride ............................................................................................................................... mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES The revision of these criteria is a systematic update of EPA’s national recommended human health criteria. EPA previously described its process for publishing revised criteria [see National Recommended Water Quality Criteria— Correction (64 FR 19781; or EPA–822– Z–99–001) or the Federal Register Notice for EPA’s 2000 Methodology (65 FR 66444)]. EPA updated the human health criteria using externally peerreviewed information sources. On May 13, 2014, EPA announced the availability of the draft updated human health criteria in the Federal Register notice ‘‘Updated National Recommended Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Human Health’’ (79 FR 27303) and announced that written views would be accepted from the public until July 14, 2014. In response to stakeholder requests, on June 23, 2014, EPA announced in the Federal Register (79 FR 35545) an extension of the public comment period for an additional 30 days, until August 13, 2014. EPA reviewed and considered all public comments received and prepared responses to those comments. EPA developed chemical-specific science documents for each of the ninety-four chemical pollutants. These documents detail the latest scientific information supporting the final human health criteria, particularly the updated toxicity and exposure input values. A fact sheet and a summary of updated input parameters (e.g., health toxicity values, bioaccumulation factors) used to derive the final updated criteria are provided. All these documents, including EPA’s responses to views received during the comment period, are available on EPA’s Web site at http://water.epa.gov/scitech/ swguidance/standards/criteria/health/. IV. What is the relationship between EPA’s 2015 final updated human health criteria and state or tribal water quality standards? Section 303(a)–(c) of the CWA requires states and authorized tribes to adopt water quality standards for their waters. As part of the water quality VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:13 Jun 26, 2015 Jkt 235001 standards triennial review process set forth in section 303(c) of the CWA, states and authorized tribes are required to review and revise, if appropriate, their water quality standards at least once every three years. States and authorized tribes must adopt water quality criteria that protect designated uses. 40 CFR 131.11(a)(1). Criteria must be based on a sound scientific rationale and contain sufficient parameters or constituents to protect the designated uses. Id. Criteria may be expressed in either narrative or numeric form. EPA’s regulations provide that states and authorized tribes should adopt numeric water quality criteria based on: (1) EPA’s recommended section 304(a) criteria; or (2) EPA’s recommended section 304(a) criteria modified to reflect sitespecific conditions; or (3) Other scientifically defensible methods. (40 CFR 131.11(b)). It is important for states and authorized tribes to consider any new or updated section 304(a) recommended criteria as part of their triennial review process to ensure that state or tribal water quality criteria reflect sound science and protect applicable designated uses. EPA recently proposed revisions to its water quality standards regulations that would, if finalized without substantive change, require states during their triennial reviews to consider new or updated section 304(a) recommended criteria and, if they do not adopt new or revised criteria for such pollutants, provide an explanation to EPA and the public as to why the state did not do so. These final updated section 304(a) human health criteria recommendations supersede EPA’s previous recommendations. Dated: June 22, 2015. Kenneth J.
